One smart instrument communication protocol has outlasted and outsold all of the alternative digital instruments and protocols introduced to market over the last thirty years -- HART and the devices that use it. With over 40 million installed HART devices worldwide, HART is not only here to stay but unlike other protocols, it also continues to get updated revisions that enhance data exchange capacity, speed, number of devices on a network, support over Ethernet, and wireless capability.
This white paper outlines how the flow of process and diagnostics data from smart HART digital field instruments can be shared with mid and higher level control, asset management and data information systems without having to upgrade expensive process control interface equipment. Learn more about HART protocol, cost effective and simple solutions for collecting HART information, HART Dynamic and Device Variables, employing extracted HART data, cybersecurity considerations, and configuration of IIoT devices. Features and considerations of devices that enable sharing of process and diagnostics data from smart HART digital field instruments are also reviewed and suggested.
